Scott Alan Young of Brookville, passed away on Friday, June 25, 2021 at the age of 65 after a short fierce battle with pancreatic cancer, surrounded by loved ones at Penn Highlands DuBois.
He was born on July 13, 1955 in Brookville, PA to Miller and Lillian (Swanson) Young. He graduated from Brookville Area High School in 1973 where he first met his wife Sherry (McManigle) Young. They were married on August 7, 1976 at the Brookville EUM church. Scott and Sherry raised their two sons, Adam and Ryan, in the family home that they designed and built together in Brookville.
As a driven professional and community member with an unmatched work ethic, he acquired his first job at Hanley Brick, later to become Glen-Gery, where he worked for over 20 years and became plant superintendent. After holding this position, he moved on to become the plant manager at Legacy Technology in Kane, PA and then at OEM Enterprises in Fairmount City, PA.

He was a member and president of Brookville Borough Council; a former member of the Laurel Festival Committee, Brookville Library Board, Jefferson County Historical Society, Brookville Firemen’s Club, Brookville Eagles Club, Brookville Quarterback Club; and a volunteer EMS and firefighter. He was also a long-time member of the Greenwood Club in Curwensville, PA. While here, he enjoyed participating in club events, attending family reunions and hunting with his family. Scott also loved spending time at his camp. His favorite activities were digging for historic relics and bottles, ATV riding, and spending time with his family and grandchildren.
